Hotel

CMS has reserved a block of guest rooms in each city at discounted rates. Availability is limited within each lodging option, and rooms will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis.

Please read:

CMS has provided the conference hotel with a guarantee that a minimum number of rooms will be sold. Although it might be possible to obtain lodging elsewhere at a lower rate, please understand that CMS will be forced to pay penalties which will jeopardize future international programs if the organization fails to meet its room block. Thank you for your consideration.

Breakfast & Taxes

The rates listed below are inclusive of daily breakfast and a 21% VAT (Value Added Tax). Local city tourist taxes are not included, so please be advised that this amount will be added to your bill upon checkout. Each municipality determines its own tax rate, and these are listed below.

Room Types

In Europe, a single room is for just one person, while a double room is for two persons. These classifications refer to the number of people who will occupy the room rather than the size of bed that will be provided. Single rooms may contain a twin, double, or king bed, while double rooms may contain twin beds (which may or may not be pushed together), a double, or a king bed. The number of breakfasts is determined by the room type (a single room permits 1 person to enjoy breakfast while a double room will allow 2 people to eat).

 

ROOMMATE FINDER

For those interested in sharing accommodations, CMS provides an online bulletin board for locating potential roommates. Each traveler is responsible for securing his or her own roommate. Payment arrangements for shared rooms must be made between the involved parties.
